Real Food Films

Food and farming luminaries, Tom Colicchio, Padma Lakshmi, Michael Pollan, Eric Schlosser, and Alice Waters and others, are among the amazing judges of our Real Food Films Contest. Launched in 2013, the annual Contest catalyzes the creation of super short films on food and sparks conversations about food, farming, and sustainability around the world. Check out our fabulous Contest website for current submission deadlines and voting periods as well as our judges, advisors, and media partners and more.

I’ve been blown away by the creativity of the Contest entries and am delighted we can share them with the public in a variety of ways. Our Pop-Up Film Fests offer free tools and resources to host a screening in your community of the prize-winning Top 10 finalist short films from the Contest each year. And our Real Food Film Library showcases dozens of the best films, organized by category so they’re easily searchable for students, educators, policy makers, and foodies.
